Abstract

The presence of uterine fibroid growths has for the past few years given rise to much discussion among gynecologists; the consideration of the surgical treatment they have demanded has received much attention, and measures of procedure, in some instances apparently opposite, have sometimes been adopted. The success attending the removal of fibroid growths either by partial or total hysterectomy has brought the subject of such neoplasms more prominently before the profession and has stimulated to such an extent inquiry into the necessity of adopting the more radical, surgical expedients that only the most careful clinical experience and pathologic investigation will be found capable of furnishing the data for determining the proper solution of the question. It was formerly believed that when a fibro-myomatous growth underwent a retrograde process from electrolysis, or from other measures of treatment, or from spontaneous action, the conditions thus induced were always favorable; later experiences have
